Here are the cmplaw listserv instructions for those who have lost them (as
I did) and wish to unsubscribe:

>To send  a message to  all the people  currently subscribed to  the list,
>just send mail to [log in to unmask] This is called "sending mail to
>the list", because  you send mail to a single  address and LISTSERV makes
>copies   for  all   the  people   who  have   subscribed.  This   address
>([log in to unmask])  is also  called  the "list  address". You  must
>never try to send any command to that address, as it would be distributed
>to all the people  who have subscribed. All commands must  be sent to the
>"LISTSERV  address",  [log in to unmask]  It is  very  important  to
>understand  the difference  between the  two, but  fortunately it  is not
>complicated. The LISTSERV address is like  a FAX number that connects you
>to  a machine,  whereas the  list  address is  like a  normal voice  line
>connecting you to a person. If you make a mistake and dial the FAX number
>when you wanted to talk to someone on the phone, you will quickly realize
>that you  used the wrong  number and call again.  No harm will  have been
>done. If on the other hand  you accidentally make your FAX call someone's
>voice  line,  the  person  receiving the  call  will  be  inconvenienced,
>especially if your FAX then re-dials  every 5 minutes. The fact that most
>people will eventually connect the FAX machine to the voice line to allow
>the FAX  to go through  and make  the calls stop  does not mean  that you
>should continue to send FAXes to  the voice number. People would just get
>mad at you.  It works pretty much  the same way with  mailing lists, with
>the difference  that you are calling  hundreds or thousands of  people at
>the same  time, and consequently  you can expect a  lot of people  to get
>upset if you consistently send commands to the list address.
>
>You  may leave  the list  at  any time  by sending  a "SIGNOFF  CMPLAW-L"
>command to  [log in to unmask] You  can also  tell LISTSERV  how you
>want it to confirm  the receipt of messages you send to  the list. If you
>do not trust the system, send a "SET CMPLAW-L REPRO" command and LISTSERV
>will send you a  copy of your own messages, so that you  can see that the
>message was distributed and did not get damaged on the way. After a while
>you  may find  that this  is getting  annoying, especially  if your  mail
>program does not  tell you that the  message is from you  when it informs
>you that new mail has arrived from  CMPLAW-L. If you send a "SET CMPLAW-L
>ACK  NOREPRO" command,  LISTSERV will  mail you  a short  acknowledgement
>instead, which will  look different in your mailbox  directory. With most
>mail programs you  will know immediately that this  is an acknowledgement
>you can read later. Finally, you can turn off acknowledgements completely
>with "SET CMPLAW-L NOACK NOREPRO".
>
>Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. You can get a
>list  of the  available  archive  files by  sending  an "INDEX  CMPLAW-L"
>command to [log in to unmask] You can  then order these files with a
>"GET  CMPLAW-L  LOGxxxx" command,  or  using  LISTSERV's database  search
>facilities. Send an  "INFO DATABASE" command for more  information on the
>latter.
>
>This  list is  available  in digest  form.  If you  wish  to receive  the
>digested  version of  the  postings,  just issue  a  SET CMPLAW-L  DIGEST
>command.
>
>Please note that  it is presently possible for other  people to determine
>that  you are  signed up  to the  list through  the use  of the  "REVIEW"
>command,  which  returns   the  e-mail  address  and  name   of  all  the
>subscribers. If  you do not  want your name to  be visible, just  issue a
>"SET CMPLAW-L CONCEAL" command.
>
>More  information on  LISTSERV  commands  can be  found  in the  LISTSERV
>reference  card, which  you can  retrieve  by sending  an "INFO  REFCARD"
>command to [log in to unmask]
>

Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much farther out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.
